Notes
Continued from serial 04600004; foliation used here is older, crossed out numbers until f. 246. Older folio numbers are absent after f. 246, while newer foliation remains; therefore, new folio numbers are denoted by a b before folio number (E.g. f. B123=new folio number 123). F. 247(?) Is therefore f. B120. F. 223 is an incomplete document, missing at least one page at beginning. Some folio numbers are illegible and/or out of sequence. Extensive use of marginal notes on some documents.
